Dalyan Mud Bath Tour
You can spend another day in Dalyan, which is about 1 hour from Fethiye.
It is near the pretty Dalyan River(the ancient Calbis River), which connects the Koycegiz lake to the sea.
Most of the people don't know the name of Dalyan, even if they come to Fethiye for their Holiday. But Dalyan has a very pretty atmosphere with its ancient and natural beauties.
As soon as you reach Dalyan, don't waste time and bargain with one of the local fisher boat captains to take you to places to see.
First stop is the mud-bath which is said to be very healthful for your skin because of the minerals and the elements it contains like Calcium, Magnesium and Sulphure. It will take only 10 minutes from Dalyan by the boat which will take you there among the marvelous landscape of the ancient Calbis river.
After that, you can go back to town center and have a good lunch including the famous fish which was caught in Dalyan river.
After lunch, you take your boat to take you to the Iztuzu Beach(The Turtle Beach) after a 30 minutes boat trip among the plants, birds(and maybe the turtles!) of the famous Dalyan river.
I am sure you will be impressed after your trip on this river. This beach is one of the rare beaches on the world where the Marine Turtles come and nest. Because of that, the beaches is seriously protected by the Turkish Association of Protection of the Natural Life.
As you reach the beach, please obey the rules to use the beach which are written on big plaques on the beach, to protect the Sea Turtles and to let them live.
The one side of this beach is the river(fresh water), and the other side is the Sea(salty water). So you can decide where to swim as you entered the beach.
I can suggest you a long walk on the sands on the Iztuzu beach, to forget all your troubles and relax. After (or before) the beach, you can also visit the ancient city of Caunos on the way back to Dalyan town center.
The place to see on this hill (10 mins walk) are, the Ancient Theatre, the Roman Bath, the Temple of Apollon, and the Acropolis up the hill. Also the Carian Rock Tombs which welcomes you as you enter the town, are really amazing.
